Jon Hopkins works hard. Late Night Tales is released as his mammoth Immunity audiovisual tour comes to a close. It's set to be a special few weeks for Hopkins as it marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. Late Night Tales as a collection of songs is a mirror to the latest evolution in Jon Hopkins.

Late Night Tales sees artists bring together a mixture of tracks for late night listening, described by GQ as: "the Rolls Royce of compilations," artists such as Four Tet, Belle and Sebastian and Bonobo have all contributed to the series.

Jon Hopkins has continually pushed himself further and further to make the absolute best music he can. Speaking to Digital Spy after the release of 2013's Immunity Jon said: "I was very ambitious 10 years ago to make albums and when they came out, they ended up sounding a little bit safe." It's an admirable and important trait for an artist to be able to turn around and look at their work and say - "it's not good enough". Hopkins' early work was certainly safe, tame and pleasant but it lacked a real cutting edge. His Wild Beasts remix of 'Two Dancers' and his work with Coldplay showed equally aggressive and tender sides willing to be meshed together and his dedication paid off with 2013's simply astounding album Immunity.

Immunity set the benchmark in emotional electronic music. Every piano key, every sample, every pounding drum beat, every arpeggiated synth was placed and arranged with a masterful ear and a conscious attention to crafting an album which tells a coherent narrative. That album was stripped back further for the Immunity Asleep Versions EP which removed the club orientated drum beats and instead floated on a sea of atmospheric synths.

The opening keys of Ben Lukas Boysen's 'Sleepers Beat Theme' bookend Hopkins' EP perfectly and open a new chapter by seamlessly blending into Darkstar's 'Hold Me Down' which itself floats into Holy Other's 'Yr Love'. The pounding drums of Holy Other's track slide in and out unnoticed before Teebs strips back the palette with a sparse harp intro.

Nils Frahm features twice in a mix which seems tailor made for his atmospheric and hazy compositions. 'I Am Daylights' by Songs of Green Pheasant introduces a distant chorus of vocals over gently plucked guitar - a fitting ray of sunlight in a Late Night collection. Jonsi and Alex's contribution slips by almost unnoticed but Letherette's infectious 'After Dawn' beat drags the attention back. The centrepiece of Late Night Tales is a Jon Hopkins cover of Yeasayer's 'I Remember' - on paper it's a surprising choice but unsurprisingly rendered tender and heartwrenching by Hopkins.

If there is one criticism of the compilation it is the slight leaning towards the twee and saccharine. 'Lady Divine' feels a little poppy and cheery and definitely out of place. Four Tet's contribution is a poor one - a little contrived and forced; it's indicative of his output's recent swing in quality. Nils Frahm's remix of 'And Its Alright' by Peter Broderick pulls the compilation right back where it should be - in the dark, low key atmosphere that Hopkins exploits so well.

The remaining tracks courtesy of Last Days, Bibio, A Winged Victory For The Sullen and Helios all float by on a more abstract plane until the spoken word closer by Rick Holland. Reciting 'I Remember' over a Jon Hopkins beat recalls previous acclaim with poet King Creosote on Mercury nominated album The Diamond Mine.

Late Night Tales is a beautifully constructed, cohesive compilation of tracks which proves the ascension of Jon Hopkins to the highest level was no fluke. The timing of the release of Late Night Tales has been perfectly placed to complete a trinity of album, EP and compilation which all take off where the previous one ended. In the studio, in a live setting and as a DJ/curator - Hopkins continues to prove he is one of Britain's most prodigiously talented musicians. This mix closes a stellar chapter in the career of Jon Hopkins.
